Real Wine Month Case (12 bottles)

For the last 9 years, May has been synonymous with Real Wine Month. A Month where all things Natural, Biodynamic and Organic are being celebrated. After 2 years of absence, May 2022 will mark the return of Real Wine Month

Look out for restaurants, wine bars, bars, cafés and wine shops around the Country who promote these wines. There will be many events organised and we will publish the list here.

WHAT IS REAL WINE?

‘Real wine’ is a term embracing wines that are made organically, biodynamically and naturally. By no means precise nor prescriptive it serves chiefly to highlight growers who work with minimal mediation, ideally to obtain the purest articulation of terroir, fruit and vintage.

All great wine begins in the vineyard and is ultimately the result of sensitive farming. It is important that growers farm sustainably and with a sense of environmental responsibility, ensuring the natural balance and health of the vineyard. The juice from the resultant grapes should then ideally, be guided to the bottle with the fewest manipulations in order to create a vital and singular – rather than an homogenous – product. This sympathetic interpretation and transformation of nature’s gifts lies at the heart of what makes a wine “real.”

Natural wines are so much more than boxes being ticked; they are the work of  dedicated vignerons, who have built their life around the few hectares they own, it's about them being able to let their children run freely in the vineyard and observe flowers, plants, vegetables that grow amongst the vines, spotting insects, birds and wild life; it's about drinking wine made from non-sprayed grapes, where the one and only ingredient are those grapes, and nothing else; it's about the energy, the purity of flavours, the natural balance between these amazing flavours. It's about the happiness drinking and sharing these wines generates.
